Happy 121st Birthday H.P. Lovecraft!

If he’d have reached a Faustian pact with dark Gods bestowing longevity, cult US horror writer H.P. Lovecraft would be 121 years old today (Saturday 20th August).  We were hoping to release a bit of news today but due to factors beyond our control (and beyond the wall of sleep) it’s not quite the right time, though coming soon….  So again I exhort you, please sign up to our TwitterFacebook or email list (top/right of the site).  We’ve also added new options for occult connectivity;

However we did not want the day to pass with without some form of celebration, so my sister (who makes yummy cakes, check them out here) kindly baked a special HPL Birthday cake with the cool cover art from Astounding Stories February-April 1936, where Lovecraft published ‘At the Mountains of Madness‘ one of his best stories IMHO. So we had a little tea party of horror (;,;)

Also check out Birthday posts at The Lovecraftsman and Tentaclii does a great round -up (however we should note the cake in this post here is not the one we made, but an image I found online at cakecentral, whereas the image here is one we’ve helped to birth (and eat!)
